Go early or make sure you book, as this place is very popular with the locals at lunch timer. The lunch menu is simple straight forward food, cooked well at a great price.

We called in and had the bread starter, BLT baguette and a grilled chicken Caesar salad. The food was really good, the portions plentiful and the service and surroundings were great. We both really enjoyed this gem of a restaurant and will call again next time we visit Formby
